Honey Berry Fruit Salad

Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the wonderfully fresh berries. The week before the big storm hit our area, I purchased a flat of strawberries from Berryland. I had this recipe in mind and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to showcase summers fresh berries. Honey Berry Fruit Salad is refreshing and berry-licious!

Honey, Honey

When making this salad or any recipe in general that calls for using honey, remember to purchase and to always use ‘real’ honey. Check the label. If it lists any ingredient besides honey, it’s not honey. Honey should be the only ingredient listed. Honey doesn’t contain sugar, corn syrup, salt and it’s not ‘flavored’ with artificial flavorings. You might be surprised but most honey sold in grocery stores isn’t real honey. And those cute little bears filled with honey? Sorry but most of those contain honey flavored syrup. We just wanted to pass this information on to you so that you are aware of what to look for the next time you need to purchase honey. By all means, use up the honey flavored syrup that you have at home. But when the time comes to purchase honey, buy the real deal.

Andy’s Honey

You’ll be amazed at how delicious real honey is. The flavor is unmistakable. I could drink Andy’s Honey right from the jar. Who’s Andy? Andy is a guy who lives down the road from us and he’s a self-sufficient  kinda guy. Andy makes jam, jellies, and sauces. He has eggs, maple syrup and honey. I wouldn’t doubt it if he makes his own beer:) He hunts and goes fishing as well. He is our supplier of rabbit, beef and pork. His wife Becky just happens to be a dog groomer. Having 3 pugs, this is an added bonus for us. We’re lucky to have an Andy to buy our honey from, that’s true, but farmer’s market, flea markets and fairs are great ways to find honey distributors in your area. Get on the web and start searching too.
